It's 1942 and Dorothy Taylor, now eighteen, dreams of distant lands far from the grey backstreets of Rotherhithe where she has spent all her life. As the war rages on, excitement comes in the form of the Americans posted in London. Although Dolly is engaged to Tony, a boy from her street who has been called up, she can't help but fall in love with Joe, a dashing American GI who eventually asks her to marry him. But America is not all she imagined it would be, and she's shocked by the cool welcome Joe's mother gives her. As she struggles to make friends and understand the man she's married, Dorothy begins to realise that she made a terrible mistake when she walked away from Tony, and wonders if he even remembers the innocent young girl who broke his heart. Only when she returns to Rotherhithe can she find out if there is still a chance of happiness for the two of them.

In The Distance between Hopes and Dreams, author Charles Lobaito presents a collection of poetry that embodies and explores the human spirit. We all wish to be great, and we all dream beyond the heights of our imagination. The verses contained here examine those wishes and dreams—their conception and their accomplishment. Each poem in this volume offers a journey—a literary awakening into the places we know and beyond. The collection combines three books of poetry into one volume. Perception of the Navigator focuses on seizing one’s destiny. The Epiphany Maker explores the abstract and the discovery of fate. Notebooks from the Past reflects on life in its search for peace. From love to war, hope to promise, history to time, freedom to knowledge, the verses in this collection share honest, witty, and philosophical considerations of life at the dawn of the twenty-first century. The Distance between Hopes and Dreams seeks to bring out the poet and dreamer in all of us. If Dreams Were Keys There’d Be No Locks Door I If dreams were keys there’d be no locks, All prisons empty, true love run amok! Fat angels would smile with rifles, and socks: To target the banana-strawberry heart. Door II Without any locks, lions would hunt Like beasts, to pounce, thus reinvent pun, Or breed like citizens for sport, and court: Under the vanilla paper bag sun ...

These poems reflect how I felt during times of pain, sorrow, hope, love, happiness and inner searching. I have known people all my life who at one time or another have needed some inspiration. These poems have been an inspiration to many who have read them. I decided to make a book of my poetry when I saw how it was helping people to work through what ever life had thrown at them. In these there is inspiration to be found. No matter what the situation you're facing there is always hope.
